One of my favorite on-the-go hobbies is collecting pressed pennies from wherever I go. On the left there is an example of a pressed penny. I do not have the one displayed. I am not completely serious about this hobby, and only have like 12, but I always keep my eye open. Recently my friend Kara was at historical museum, she remembered that I like pressed pennies, and got me a penny with Houdini on it from the Houdini section. I was elated. Some of the places I have pennies from are The Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago, Illinois. The United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and the Mississippi waterfront museum in Dubuque Iowa. There are many things you can do with pressed pennies, but I like mine the way they are. This lady made bracelet out of hers!
